If you follow the pointlessbanter account on twitter or are friends with me on Facebook you saw that a couple of weeks ago I posted a note about having a meeting with a producer. We had two meetings while I was in California and we talked about a couple of projects, one based around some of the content you can find on here and another about something that is more towards my professional field. This is all in the early stages and I really can’t say too much about it but things went well.
However I was disappointed that we weren’t able to tackle some of the other projects I have bouncing around in my head. Here are a few TV shows that I would like to see.
The Bachelor /Bachelorette meets Survivor
I freely admit I watch the Bachelor and the Bachelorette on ABC. Not because I am a closet romantic or anything like that but because I think both shows are horribly sad. First of all the failure rate of the relationships from these shows is like 90% so going in people delude themselves into thinking that they are going to be picked from 20 people and after like four dates fall in love with someone and get engaged. The entire show just reeks of desperation from both genders.
So what would improve it?
Whenever someone gets voted off they get dumped on an island like Survivor except they are kept there forever and video taped for our enjoyment. The desperation minus basic needs multiplied by the craziness of the contestants equals the best show ever. Guys will be killing each other when trying to impress the women with who has better abs meanwhile the women will be knifing each other because their biological clocks are ticking. It is a massive time bomb filled with people that probably shouldn’t breed. Plus we left them on an island that they can never get off of; it is a win for society.
The Gary Busey Channel
Part comedy, part tragedy, all Busey…
What more do you need in your life? Busey is vastly more entertaining than anything on television and with a channel dedicated to him we can watch his antics all day. I can’t wait to hear him lecture his oatmeal about the time he tried to sniff coke off of his dog when it was running around the house. It should be excellent times.
I can’t watch medical or legal dramas. When ER first came on television I watched the first few years but then just realized that every show was pretty much the same someone needs their life saved + personal drama. It grew old to me… same with the legal thriller genre.
So why not combine both show types so it eliminates like ten prime time shows? Each week a patient can be rushed into the ER and they die dramatically because the nurse and the doctor have this massive sexual tension that makes them not think clearly. Then they have to go to court and be defended or prosecuted by a team of lawyers that have massive sexual tension between them. Eventually the show ends when the lawyers have to get treated by the doctors in a gripping two hour final that somehow includes George Clooney.
So there you have it FOX I just gave you guys some winning ideas. (No other network has crappy enough shows to listen to me.)
